Nam nuzhno bol’she oruzhiya. Khranite Ameriku v bezopasnosti.


Just after the tragedy in Florida, the Russian propaganda machine went into full war-footing. ‘Nam nuzhno bol’she oruzhiya. Khranite Ameriku v bezopasnosti.’ translates roughly to ‘We want more guns. Keep America Safe.’ Covert Russian propaganda flooded Twitter after the Parkland shooting to stoke America’s raw divides. Americans found themselves mired in a surge of content from Kremlin-linked accounts. According to Ben Popken and Jo Ling Kent writing on NBC.com, ‘Live data collected by the nonpartisan Hamilton 68 dashboard, Russian-linked Twitter accounts flooded the service with tweets using popular hashtags like #parkland, #guncontrolnow and #florida.

“It’s information war out there and social media increasingly becomes a battlefield of political adversaries ambiguously foreign and domestic,” David Carroll, an associate professor of media design at the New School, said in an email.

By clicking or searching for a hashtag, the firehose of tweets can be organized into smaller topic categories. Users can add a hashtag to participate in a smaller conversation on that subject. Russian trolls use popular hashtags to get into trending conversations, but then add more incendiary hashtags to drive readers to more partisan conversations and explosive imagery.

Without identification by Twitter or the government, it’s impossible to know who is a troll and who isn’t. A survey of tweets using the top hashtags flagged by the Hamilton 68 dashboard showed tweets adamantly in favor of gun control and saying the NRA had taken “blood money.” Other tweets attacked liberals, the media and lawmakers.

Experts say the goal of Russian troll propagandists isn’t to sway people’s opinions in one way or another. Instead, the accounts seek to exploit divisions in order to break down society into smaller, warring groups. Trolls drum up persona accounts on every side of the ideological spectrum and take advantage of high-impact events to spread confusion and disarray. In particular, they’re able to take advantage of how Twitter doesn’t require users to verify their identity.

Social media companies including Twitter, Facebook and Google have faced rebuke and testified in hearings about how Russian trolls and other malicious actors exploit their platforms to spread political disinformation and profit from partisan hoaxes.

Twitter didn’t respond to a request for comment from NBC News. Recently the social media giant has said it will “continue to strengthen our fight against malicious automation and coordinated efforts to manipulate the Twitter platform.”

More than half of Americans think Russia will likely attempt to influence this year’s midterm elections, according to the results of a new NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll released Wednesday, and most don’t think the government is doing enough to stop it.

With the congressional probes aimed at investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 race still incomplete, a majority of Americans — 55 percent — are not confident that the federal government is doing enough to prevent foreign interference in our elections. Additionally, 57 percent of Americans think it’s likely that Russia will try to influence this year’s midterms.

However, there’s a significant party divide. Republicans surveyed were more likely to express confidence that government is doing enough to prevent future interference, and less likely to believe that Moscow would try to meddle. A majority of Independents (58 percent) and an overwhelming majority of Democrats (80 percent) say Russian interference is likely in 2018.

Meanwhile, 64 percent of Americans surveyed said that they think it’s likely that a foreign government — not necessarily Russia — will try to interfere in the 2018 elections.

A vast majority of Democrats and Democratic-leaners (79 percent), as well as Independents (68 percent), said foreign interference is probable this year. Republicans and Republican-leaners surveyed are split on the issue.

Eight in ten Americans, or 79 percent, are also concerned that the country’s voting systems might be vulnerable to computer hackers, including nearly half (47 percent) who are very concerned. Perhaps with good reason — Russian hackers successfully penetrated U.S. voter registration rolls in “an exceptionally small number” of states, according to a new NBC News report.

Americans are split in their confidence when it comes to the election officials in their own states. Nearly half (49 percent) are not confident that the election officials in their states are doing enough to prevent foreign countries from influencing future U.S. elections. The other 48 percent are confident that their state is doing enough.

Americans have the least amount of confidence in tech companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google, whoseexecutives have been called to testify before various panels in the House and Senate regarding Americans’ exposure to Russian propaganda through their platforms during the 2016 campaign.

Over two-thirds (68 percent) said they are not confident that technology companies are doing enough to prevent foreign countries from influencing future elections. This sentiment is uniformly shared across Republicans (65 percent), Independents (66 percent), and Democrats (73 percent).

So, what do you think?

Dear Senator McCain:


This is the list of U.S. Senators and their approval ratings by the voters before the Tax Bill is voted upon this coming week. Please click on this link.
U.S. Senator Approval Ratings 2017 Before The Tax Bill Vote

These are the men and women who will decide if this bill, which was finally shown to the opposition party late Friday evening for the first time, will be passed. It will add an estimated $1.5 Trillion to the deficit. The corporate tax rate will be reduced from 35% to 21%. While more than 13 million will lose their health benefits. According to Richard Frank, Professor of health economics at the Harvard Kennedy School, ‘The evidence that exists suggests that in the near term, the individual health insurance market would experience further disruptions. The Congressional Budget Office estimates a reduction in the insured population by 4 million people in 2019, and 13 million by 2027.’ Overall, the tax plan would reduce the government’s role in health care (and potentially trigger future cuts to Medicaid and Medicare). What seems to have been forgotten is what this bill will do to the elderly of the nation.

It also includes new limits on other tax breaks, including the mortgage interest deduction and the state and local tax deduction. The bill prohibits taxpayers from prepaying next year’s state and local income taxes, in order to deduct them from 2017 taxes. That form of tax planning would have allowed taxpayers to benefit more from the full state and local deduction this year before it is capped next year.

The bill also has additional tax relief for the owners of engineering and architectural firms and the elimination of a change in capital gains treatment of homes sales, a key priority for the real estate industry. These are your lobbyists at work. The owners of engineering and architectural firms get tax breaks and the elderly on fixed income sees increases everywhere.

The 2025 expiration date for the individual tax cuts remains, as does the estate tax. At the core of the bill are large tax cuts for corporations and other businesses. It is said that this will create jobs, investment and economic growth. It can be said that this is trickle-down economics.

Thus far, only Senators Flake & Collins still have reservations. If they decide to vote against the bill, that would leave it up to the two Senators who are ill to create a tie and have the Vice President decide the issue. Senator Thad Cochran (R) Mississippi had a non-melanoma lesion removed from his nose earlier this week. Unless he objects to be seen with a bandage on his nose, he will vote for the bill. And Senator John McCain (R) Arizona is being treated for the side effects of brain cancer treatment at Bethesda Naval Hospital. If either can’t make it, the bill could be defeated. If they both show up, and Senators Flake & Collins vote against it, once again it will be up to the great Vietnam Naval war warrior, who flew off the Oriskany in sealing his fate toward the freedom of the nation, to decide the fate of the country. If you have read Zalin Grant’s article ‘The Day John McCain Got Shot Down’ (http://bit.ly/2CImhuF), there is great drama ahead. Will he have the fortitude to do the right thing? Or will he be the A4 pilot who rarely followed the rules?

Does it get any more dramatic than that?

Darkness Begins To Take Hold


#MeToo has changed the way the world see’s women’s dignity. It is more than women’s rights…it is individual dignity of anyone who is abused by those more powerful. In an article by David Weigel in the Washington Post (121017), the case has been made by three individual Senators that the President of the United States must resign because of the accusations of women who have said the the man in the White House has sexually abused them prior to his taking office.

Weigel writes, ‘Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and two of his Democratic colleagues have suggested that President Trump should consider resigning, after a run of sexual-harassment scandals has driven out some members of Congress.

Sen. Al Franken “felt it proper for him to resign,” Sanders said in an interview with NBC’sMeet the Press” Sunday morning (121017), referring to the Democrat from Minnesota. “Here you have a president who has been accused by many women of assault, who says on a tape that he assaulted women. He might want to think about doing the same.”

Sanders’s comment, which built on a tweet he sent last week, came after Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley (Ore.) and Cory Booker (N.J.) suggested that the “#MeToo moment” should prompt another look at the women who accused Trump of sexual harassment during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“The president should resign because he certainly has a track record with more than 17 women of horrific conduct,” Merkley said last week in an interview for the weekday version of “Meet the Press.”’

Perhaps it won’t be Russia that brings down this President.

Perhaps it will be the women who have begun the #MeToo movement in this country.

After all, women make up 50.2% of the population of the United States. Seventy (70%) are of voting age.

Poll numbers continue to come in on the low side, and a recent survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute suggests that women are more apt to be less approving of the president.

When asked whether the President should be impeached, 47% of female respondents said yes, while only 32% of the men involved answered the question in affirmative terms.

In fact, NPR reports that “women are a big reason why his approval rating is so low, Gallup data show. Women approve of the President far less than they have approved of any other president at this point in his administration in at least the last 64 years, according to data collected since Dwight Eisenhower was in the White House.”

The Hatch Is Open

The once close friend of the Senior Senator of Massachusetts, the Senior Republican Senator last Winter mused out loud that he was considering carefully retirement. And he mentioned that a person of integrity would have to be available to take his place. Then in October he told friend he plans on retiring.

Then about a month later, in fact last month, the Senior Republican Senator blew up publicly admonishing Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, who stated that ‘With all due respect, I get sick and tired of the rich getting richer.’ Then Orrin Hatch blew back, ‘I come from the poor people, and I have been here working my whole stinkin’ career for people who don’t have a chance, and I really resent anybody that says I’m doing it for the rich. Give me a break. I think you guys overplay all the time, and it gets old. And frankly, you ought to quit it. What you said was not right. I come from the lower middle class, originally. We didn’t have anything. So don’t spew that stuff on me. I get a little tired of that crap. I like you very much personally’, Hatch said to Brown. ‘But this bullcrap that you guys throw out here really gets old after a while. And then to do it right at the end of this is just not right.’

Born one of nine children in Pittsburgh during the Depression, his father was a metal lather. Metal lathers work with metal to build and install framework for the inside and outside walls in building construction projects. They did not make much money but during the Depression, it was a job. And in that era, jobs were very difficult to come by. And the Senator is prone to say they didn’t have indoor plumbing. Fact check: many during that time, especially the vast majority of American’s who lived off the land did not have indoor plumbing.

Today Orrin Hatch is the President Pro Tempore of the United States Senate. And he has been named the Designated Survivor.

The other day, the Senator called the President one of the best Presidents he’s seen in office stating ‘He’s one of the best I’ve served under.’ Then he invited the President to come to Utah Monday.

Is the Senator, who is 83 years old and once ousted a three term Senator by asking ‘What do you call a Senator who has been in the United State Senate for 18 years? Home.’ is now in his zillionth term in Washington, seeking a reversal of his previous retirement thoughts? It is more than home. It is like home home. It is a comfortable home. It is assumed that it has indoor plumbing.

But why would he reconsider? Well, behind the scenes looms a massive shadow of a man who is being supported by nearly everyone in the State of Utah and the Mormon Church. The first Morman every nominated for Presidency of the United States, Mitt Romney. And Mr. Romney has the power.

In a poll held recently, here was the results:

Voters in the survey only chose Hatch over Wilson if they knew she’s a Democrat.

But shockingly, in a poll held in September, Wilson fared better after a pollster forgot to include party affiliation on the survey. She received 45% of that hypothetical vote, and Hatch got 34%, leaving 21% undecided.

There is no mistaking it…Romney wins by a much larger margin than would an older Hatch.

But let’s look to Monday and see if the trip to Utah is a pat on the back or a boost to run again.

Before Harvey


We are stranded in a sea of unrelenting sexual misconduct discovery. Day after day, industry after industry, men are being accused of inexcusable sexual misconduct. It is a game changer in American life. When looked back at it in history, years from now, this will be the decade of transparency, when America got clean and men were put on a plateau of shame for not being men, for being stupid, boorish and downright a-holes. Or, will it remain, swept under the rug of privileged protection, where women are no longer our daughters but playthings for the powerful?

And as everything in our lives today, it began before Harvey. There was the comedian who has been accused of sexual misconduct for years as he enthralled all of us with his humor behind a different mask. There’s the guy who now resides in the White House. Eight women accused him of sexual misconduct. And there were video and audio tapes to prove it. Here was a man so brazen as to first suggest it was only locker room banter but now he insists that it was not his voice on the tapes, while everyone in the world can hear for themselves it was himself trying to impress a ladder-climbing punk reporter with the last name of two of the past President’s of the United States. We, citizens of this country, elected a low excuse of a man, and changed the way we look at everything today, including among other things, lying, cheating, stealing, disrespecting, bullying, mocking and abusing. They are now looked upon as badges of bright thought…understanding…new Orwellian behavior of what a man show be like. Are these the qualities we want for our sons? Is this what we are raising, men filled with power and greed to do anything they want, any time they want to do it?

Make no mistake about it, when the men and women of America decided to fight back at the accused sexual abuser for President by voting him into the office via the Electoral College (he couldn’t win on the popular vote), it was a game changer in American behavior. Puke flowed out of the cabinets of the closets holding the truth. But many turned their heads because of Party.

These past weeks, women finally began to come out and talk about what men had done to them…men of perceived power, ignoring what the man in the White House stated by saying he could ‘Stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody’ and not ‘lose any voters’.

They care now.

When the women came out and told their story of Harvey, the mega producer and holder of the ‘production sofa of the year’ award, year after year, he hid in Arizona and disguised himself with glasses, a wig and a hat, while believing to be a person who was going through ‘sexual awareness rehab’. Like the famous comedian before him, he held power over the women he allegedly abused. And they didn’t like it. Thanks to Samantha Cooney, Time (112217), who listed a vast number of them, thus started the flow…first a trickle, now a full force coming out of the tap on a daily basis. (For the list, go to:http://ti.me/2jxWflc)

In all, so far, these are 64 men who have disgraced themselves, to the public, to their acquaintences, to their friends, to their families and to themselves.

We care now.

Men are supposed to be devoted standard barriers for good manners, proper ethics and decent souls. Euripides stated, ‘To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.’ Didn’t their fathers teach these men anything? Didn’t their mothers teach these men anything? Didn’t their peers stand up and tell them to knock it off? Didn’t the women who complained have a clear and transparent platform to tell their side of the story and not be ridiculed? Didn’t the public turn their heads and raise their voices in disgust? Didn’t men and women demand respect and say ‘No’ and not go to see their product anymore, nor buy their products anymore or vote for them?

Will this be a blip in America’s social moment when nothing is done or will it stand as a seismic time when it changed everything?

Where are the politicians who will stand up and say ‘No’…’No More’? Where are the politicians who will stand up to their patronage supporters and say ‘No’…’No More’? Where are the voters? Will they keep these people in office, if they don’t?

Let us see when they have a vote in Alabama for a new Senator of the United States next week.

Perhaps this is the time to let us see…set the record clear and straight.

Then we will be able to see those who have been raised by good mothers and fathers who set the right example.

Or will she continue to cry in the shadows of democracy.
